I am surprised that there are so many live/rescue disks for amd64 only
because I had googled trying to find one or more and for some reason,
nothing specific to amd64 showed up readily in the results. Or maybe I
didn't drill down far 'enuf', I don't know. But thans all. I have
pulled down two of them and will do the other two over the weekend and
take a look at them. Luckily I've never had to use one yet, other than
gparted once, but it's better to have them on hand than need one and not
be able to get at it. 8^)
Why is it you need specific to amd64, since amd64 will boot and run
Want the amd64 'cuz I'm running an amd64 chip. Had put in a 32 bit
INSERT disk and it was very limited as to what it could do. So figure
that I'm gonna' need a rescue disk more specific to the processor in
And after I had purchased this hardware, 64 bit AMD chip/mobo, tried to
fire up a hard drive w. 32 bit on it and it didn't like what it saw so
went full bore 64 Debian Lenny/stable. And it has been a true
experience setting it all up compared to the previous setups I've done.
Learned a lot the hard way. 8=) Trial and error and RTFM'ing as much
So far, most of what I've tried has eventually worked.
